Bitterly disappointing sequel to the fantastic Child 44.
This book is awful. Simple as that. What Tom Rob Smith achieved with Child 44 has been wiped out by this poor follow up. Whilst there are interesting ideas in the book, it's a mish-mash of scenes and doesn't flow particularly well...one wonders if the words 'film rights' have been mentioned to the author and he's thinking movie adaptation.
I truly wanted to love this book as I did Child 44, but alas there is no substance. Will give great consideration to ever reading this author again.

So you loved the first and really didn't rate the second but that warrants the consideration comment? Obvioulsy, all about opinions. Was the sequel really so poor that it negates the debut?
